Show trial in Florida

Leena“After more than two years in prison – much of it spent in solitary confinement – former University of South Florida professor and political activist Sami Al-Arian finally went on trial in Tampa, Fla., this week. There’s little chance, however, that Al-Arian will be able to get a fair trial…. This trial is part of the U.S. government’s post-September 11 witch-hunt of Arabs and Muslims.”
